Thousands of camels will be killed in Australia

Thousands of camels shot by snipers. That’s the drastic operation carried out by Australia to fight an unexpected consequence of the extreme heat.

    I understand the measure but I feel sorry for the camels. It was not their choice to be introduced in Australia.

    Cull the humans equally especially those which are foreign origins in what we call cities where originally it should have been wilderness. Humans is far high at the top in destroying earth and nature. Shame to us humans!

    A good idea. Camels are invasive and drink too much.

    Surprises me how many stupid people there are here with the whole "this is so evil, let the camels live" story. Either folks have no idea what 'native' and 'non-native' mean in regards to ecology or they have no idea of the scale of Australia or any understanding of what has happened to the country in the last 200 years. If killing the camels isn't the solution, then what "IS" the solution? Leave them be and watch the broken remains of the Australian ecosystem degrade to dust? Starve funding to heathcare, education, etc. so we can invest in a multi-billion dollar 'collect and ship the camels out Australia' program? People just see "Australia kills an animal" but don't even fire a single neuron up to see the larger picture of what is going on and why. Nature created animals and plants and each within a specific place in the world. They occupy a niche and they're adapted to survive in that niche and defend against the other animals that also live naturally in that niche. Penguins in Antarctica, Kangaroos in Australia, Pandas in China, Cheetahs in Africa, Kiwis in New Zealand, etc. Humans screwed that all up. We destroy the animals and plants within a location (think of the deforestation of the Amazon to make farmland), but humans also took plants and animals from one land and brought them to new lands where they don't belong. Australia is one of the worst places on earth for plant and animal extinction, but only a few of these are because humans hunted killed or destroyed them, most of Australia's extinctions were caused by the animals we put in Australia, not by humans killing them directly. Maybe research a little on what cane toads or feral cats have done to Australia to understand how this works. Like putting a fox in a chicken farm, Australian animals and plants have no defence against these alien animals. Dromedary Camels are native to Saharan Africa, Arabia and the Middle East; here the environment is adapted to their presence and they are part of the natural ecosystem. These camels are not an Australian animal, humans put them in Australia and now the camel is destroying the deserts alongside dozens of other alien species. Nature isn't some cute Pixar movie where all these cute fluffy animals talk and have human emotions and feelings. How many people have swatted a spider or a fly in their house lately or poisoned a cockroach or bug on the floor? Was that not also an animal? Was it somehow unable to feel pain or suffer because, unlike a camel, it wasn't furry and 'cute' to us? And the same can be said for anyone that has eaten meat lately because animals suffer far longer and far worse when they're being culled for human consumption whereas the camels that are being shot are alive an free one minute and dead the next, there is very limited suffering in the process by comparison yet I can't imagine that 70% of the people commenting or angry/sad reacting to the video are all vegetarians. Leaving them to live is both irresponsible and a death-sentence for the plants and animals that BELONG in Australia. It is impossible to humanely capture and remove the camels faster than they breed (and yes, people have been taking the camels out the desert and putting them on farms for years but it's slow and expensive) and to increase the scale of such an operation so that it would work would take more money than the Australian economy can produce without shutting the nation down. Humans put camels here and it is now our duty to remove them before more of the ecosystem is destroyed.

    With climate change the availability of water and food is getting increasingly under stress and needs to be managed. Unfortunately these animals are introduced and causing problems so the population needs to be controlled. We do the same with introduced animals causing problems in our country. Have to be practical.
